Involvement in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award gives pupils a great deal of enjoyment and a sense of achievement as well as an award which is highly valued by universities and employers.
Kelvinside Academy offers all three levels of the award: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Usually participants start with Bronze in S3 and can work through to Gold in S6. The best known part of the Award is the Expedition, which lasts two days at Bronze level and four at Gold.
